What Will Apple Announce At Their Music-Centric Sept 1 Event?

Apple has finally made their September event official, and it's coming sooner than many expected - the "special event" will be held on September 1 in San Francisco, and from the look of things it's going to involve music.

Some possible announcements:

New, Facetime-ready iPod touches?

A 1.7-inch touchscreen iPod shuffle? (And some cases to add gas to the speculation have already started popping up.)

The feverishly anticipated cloud-enhanced iTunes?

The long-rumoured $US99 Apple TV?

99 US cent TV show rentals through Apple TV?

The Apple sound-hole guitar suggests that Apple's music-making products might get updates - perhaps new versions of Logic and Garage Band? I certainly wouldn't mind if they were overhauled to take advantage of the Magic Trackpad's multitouch goodness. Or how about Garage Band for the iPad? Hell, I'd just take some news on the iPad's jump to iOS 4.

And perhaps at this event we'll finally find out the answer to the mystifying question: Why on Earth did Lady Gaga visit the Apple offices? If Gaga and Steve Jobs appeared on stage together, the combined reality distortion would be so great that I'm not sure our planet would ever recover.

We'll see soon - very soon - enough. [Market Watch and Engadget]

    Hopefully it's an iPod touch with everything the iPhone 4 has except the phone bit. And at a reasonable price.

    Who am I kidding, it'll be expensive.

    Guesses

    -New iPod touch that'll be closer to iPhone 4 build.

    -New Shuffle/Nano. 1.7 inch 'touchscreen'. Not sure how the hell that's going to work. Get a look at 1.7 inches on your ruler and see how much wiggle room your fingers get. That's like 2x finger-breadths side-by-side. There's going to be 0 precision with it.

    Here are some more possibilities: http://www.ilounge.com/index.php/backstage/comments/leaked-details-on-2010-2011-ipods-iphone-5-bumper-2-ipad-mini/
